Wireless Crusader FON In $5 Wi-Fi Router Giveaway

If you can spare 5 bucks for a $60 router and you don’t mind sharing your wireless connection with other users, you might want to become a “fonero.” Foneros are folks who agree to install $5 routers from Spanish start-up FON and then agree to allow other FON users to share the wireless access point for at least 12 months. FON hopes to hand out 1 million routers and create a network of hotspots via home users and small businesses. Their goal is a worldwide block-by-block network of shared wireless connections, accessible by PC users as well as roaming mobile phones and portable gaming devices. So far, 54,000 people across the globe have signed up to become foneros.
